We’re a young, international family passionate about the ocean and the wind, who fell in love with the beautiful and distinctive place we now call home, Icaraizinho!

In 2005 Edouard left France for Brazil and was immediately captivated by the abundance of Icaraizinho’s nature, predominantly the perfect wind conditions and empty ocean. A waterman, who’s surfed and sailed for many years all over the world developing an in-depth knowledge of the ocean and wind. He’s an IKO level 2 Kite Instructor and has his BPJEPS sailing qualification. He teaches both kite and windsurfing.

Roxanne is a South African with a strong affection for people and the ocean. She runs the day-to-day of the pousada, supervises the restaurant team, and ensures all is running smoothly for guests to enjoy a memorable stay. Between operating the sewing machine at Reco Kite, her kite recycling and repair service and looking after Tom and Jules, she finds some time to enjoy a kite or windsurfing session.
